I use gmail. I get attachments. I am trying to find a means to be able to save these attachments directly to SD card. For example,
jpgs/png/gif, not a problem. docs/xls/txt, I can peview, but not save them. problem is if I get a 3g2 file, I cannot preview or save the file. Sometimes I get videos from client's phones and I can nor longer view them remotely. With my winmo phone, I was able to at least detach them to the SD card. Bottom line, is there ANY way, app or otherwise, to just simply have a "download" button?
I've got a 16gb micro SD card, and other than music and some pictures i've not really got a lot on it. My internal memory has almost been used up though, and I think this has something to do with my text messages. I was wondering if there is a way to directly save them to my micro SD card, instead of the internal memory? One of my friends, who also had a Hero, had too many text messages and her message app wouldn't open and kept crashing. I don't really want this to happen to my phone.
I had someone forward me via MMS a chicken dance/song thingy. Anyway, I went through a process to save it. It saved it on my SD Card. How in the world do you get to the SD Card to get info you saved on it? And how do you make the SD Card your default place to save pictures and other stuff?
If I go to AndroidForums on my phone, and I long-press on the logo, I have the option to save it.However, if I go to a direct link like http://imgur.com/OLnXZ.jpg and it just loads the image, how do I save it now? I long-press on the image and it doesn't do anything. I am rooted and running a custom ROM, but I don't remember being able to do this on stock.
I've developed an application which has a service and boot completed receiver. The boot completed receiver schedules the service to be executed after every 7 minutes. The boot completed receiver saves its context in a public static variable which is then accessed by service whenever it is scheduled by scheduler. The service first gets the IMEI number of phone and then saves it to a file if it is not already saved. Everything worked smoothly but then i logged into market place and after that the scheduled service was not able to get IMEI number directly , neither was it able to open the file which had already been created and it keeps on throwing nullpointer exception for both direct IMEI retrieval and attempt to open file.................
my Android device: Everytime I add a new contact it's randomly saved to one of my two Google accounts that are synched with my phone, but I want it to be saved directly(locally) to the phone. I've browsed through all the settings menus but couldn't find a solution.
I guess milestone is indeed a great device until i experience the problem of memory shortage for applications in the phone internal memory. is there any way to save the apps in the memory card instead?if not, i think i might sell this phone and get another really wish i do not have to do that.
So is there any way to get apps directly to the sd card because i've run into an app i want but it takes up quite a lot of space for the onboard memory it didn't have alot to start with an the problem i have is i can't uninstall anything on my onboard memory to make room to download the app so i need a way to get the app either to my computer to put it on my sd card or a way to directly download it on to the sd card
So I've downloaded the Tajm and Battstatt which are widgets and for some reason they're downloading directly to my sdcard. So while I have them on my homescreen and I reboot my phone they will not show up anymore. So I decide to move them to my phone memory and when I do they no longer show up on the widgets list anymore.
I just got a GPE LG Pad 8.3 and I have not seen an option in the stock camera app to save photos and video to the SD card. Is there any camera app that can write photos and videos to the SD card? It seems like a waste of an SD card if I can't have my photo's and videos go directly to the card.
I apologize if this was already addressed. I received the 2.2 update last week and liked everything so far. This morning i snapped an image of 42nd St-Time Square and I tried to upload to facebook. To my surprise, the option to unload directly to fb is NOT there...WTH? I did notice that the fb app for android has a little camera icon to take a picture.
I need to directly read/write a file on sd card without cache. I can use "posix_fadvise" to achieve the purpose on Ubuntu I try NDK to make the function call, but it seems disabled on Android How can I do?
the Camera on my Eris will not take pictures due to an error saying it has insufficient file permissions to save pictures to my SD card. I have not unmounted my SD card since this has happened nor did I do it before. I have unmounted it before, but it was never a problem. The camera will not save pictures at all not matter what app is using the camera (Default Android Camera, Facebook, Photoshop Mobile).
1: why can't I save to my ad card? 2: how do I send a picture sms message?
Also are there any apps out there that will let me download full length mp3's? And did I get a bad battery or does the HTC Eris battery only last a couple hours? Also my phone is an HTC droid eris. Oh and one last question i heard that the eris will be updated from android 1.5 to 2.0 Will that be a software update that I will be able to do with my 2 day old eris when The update comes out?
Is it possible to write data directly from my phone to my micro SD card? I got my Captivate a couple days ago, and I've been trying to research as much as I can about it, but I can't find this info. I know I can do it with a computer, but I don't have one. I want to put music and apps I download on the micro SD if possible.
I have a zillion labels. Only way to manage the old digital life Any who, it's a PITA going into GMail and scrolling through the astronomical list of labels to see what's in there. Needless to say, some labels are, to me, more important than others. With that in mind, what I'd like to know is how I can create a shortcut on the desktop that will go directly to a specific label in GMail. It's gotta be possible.
This is my first "smartphone" although I have used a corporate Blackberry and I have used a Palm for many years. I've had this phone for about a month now. While the hardware is ok, the software for critical functions (Calendar, Contacts, Notepad, and Music) absolutely sucks!
1. I do not want to use Google/Gmail for my calendar and contacts. I don't know about any of you, but I do not feel comfortable having my confidential contact and calendar information sitting on the internet in Google. The company I work for even has a block on Google contacts & Gmail because it is not secure and fraught with potential for virus. I want a way to sync calander, contacts and notepad directly from my PC to my phone. Unfortunately, this can't be done. I've tried Companion Link. Besides the fact that it cost $39, I can't even get it to work. This type of functionality should be a basic part of a smartphone. Iphones do it. Blackberry's do it. Palm Pre does it. Why not the Droid?
2. Music - I have been trying to figure out a way that music synced to the Droid will play in the proper order. The Droid will only play music in Alphabetical order. I can't find a way to play music in Track # order. I have been on the phone with Motorola for hours. Finally got to Level 2 tech support. They told me that it cannot be done. How stupid is this? Try listening to a Broadway Show album in alphabetical order! Right now I feel if you just want a fancy toy, buy a Droid. If you want a real "smartphone" look somewhere else.
I have a Motorola Moto G 8GB which is running very low on storage (only about 800mb left). This phone does not take Micro SD cards but it comes with 50GB Google Drive storage. However i haven't used this at all. I am wondering whether i could download android apps and games to google drive, dropbox etc. Games like Real Racing take up about 1GB so i cannot download it to my phone. Can i download it to the Cloud? If this is not possible, is there any way that i could save the app data on the cloud. E.g. The Simpsons: Tapped Out is about 37mb to download off the play store, but then you must download the updates etc which are about another 250mb. is there anyway to save this 250mb on the cloud. Or any other games data.
today I put my sd card into my sd card reader to throw some photos on to my computer. After I was done i put the sd card back into my droid and booted it up. After booting I get a notification saying my SD card is blank, so I turn off the phone and pull the battery out. When I grabbed my SD card it burnt my hand "literally" it was that hot... Wtf?!?! I put the SD card back in the reader and the computer doesnt even see the card. Idk if anyone has heard of a similar problem b4 and knows a fix...Thanks in advance! Side Note; I work at a cell phone repair store, so I put the sd card in two other blackberry's and they say "your sd card needs to be formated or it is corrupt". I put other sd cards into my phone and i have no problems.
